You should try starting in safemode, if no menu at start, just press F8 after the bios.
perhaps after a restart in safe mode it should have fixed itself, if you add some hardware try to remove it to try,

When i open my windows xp ..it appears the following; We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. If your...


Cause:-
The reason why your computer is responding like this is because you have recently installed a driver (that was unapproved or flaky in technical terms it was not signed by Microsoft to be genuine) or it can be a software.
Solutions:-
(1)Restart your PC and start hitting the F8 key again and again you will see a list on a black screen. In that screen you should select "Last known good configuration" Select it and your life will go to normal. But as you said nothing has happened
(2)Try this solution. Restart your PC again and go through the same procedure again Pressing F8 repeatedly and On the black screen list select "Start in SAFE MODE". You will see the computer booting with minimum resources. Goto Start button. On the pop up start menu click "Control Panel"and in the opening window select "Add Remove Programs" and then uninstall any program that you have recently installed before your computer crashed you can check the dates also. Similarly if you have not installed any software or program. Then you might have installed a driver. To uninstall a driver go to "My Computer" (in XP)or "Computer"(in Vista and 7) right click it and in the menu click the "Manage" tab and go to "Device manager" on the opening window. Device manager can also be found in control panel. open the device manager. You will find all the Installed drivers on the PC just remove or uninstall by browsing and right clicking them and in the menu selecting "uninstall" that on which you have installed most recently. Restart your computer and the computer should work fine and you should only use drivers that are digitally signed by Microsoft no other.
(3)If the above solutions fail, do one thing go to "Start" on the menu click "Accessories" and then go to "System tools" in the System tools go to "System Restore" and then follow the instruction of the wizard make sure that you have a "System restore point" already created before you continue with the wizard. The Computer will take the Windows image (or as it is technically called restore point) and restores your system without affecting your data and stuff.

Good Luck!

Code 19


Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19)

Try these options:
•Click Uninstall, and then click Scan for hardware changes to load a usable driver.
•Restart the computer in Safe Mode, and then select Last Known Good Configuration. This rolls back to the most recent successful registry configuration.

Hope it helps.

Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


Hi,

Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.

Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

Windows XP will not boot


Hi there, my name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem.

It could be a number of problems.

1: Have you installed any new hardware or software? This can cause some conflictions. If there is any new hardware you have installed and your PC is constantly rebooting, then remove that hardware and try booting. If you have recently installed new software and getting the loop, then start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots windows. If you can access windows in safe mode, then uninstall any new software you may have added.

2: It could be you need a new power supply. They are very cheap to buy and I would recommend a qualified technician to install it for you

3: Your pc may be infected with a virus and has affected the boot file. Try to repair windows by using the windows xp disk. Insert the disk and run using the CD. You will then go through a few blue screens and press R to repair your windows xp installations

I hope this information has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or further problems

Windows does not start successfully


Hello,
Boot to safe mode. Then log in as administrator. Open My Computer, rightclick on C drive. Click properties. Select Tools and then click Error Checking. Select (Automatically fix file system errors) and then click start.

It will ask that you restart the computer. Upon restart it will run a check disk and if there are any file system error that may be affecting your boot up problem, it will fix them. If that was the problem, it should start up after this process. If not then let me know so we can try something else.

Thanks,
Lolita
